Princess Transport in Hound Dog Two

Mother Nature had other plans for Hound Dog One on Sunday as the mission had to be cancelled due to weather. Fog in the Greenville area was the initial culprit which delayed our departure. Once the fog started to lift, thunderstorms invaded the Hilton Head Island Airport area and the decision was made to take to the roads in Hound Dog Two.

We met Bonnie Thorpe in Columbia, SC and transferred Princess into HD2. The drive from the Columbia area to Coosawhatchie took about an hour and 45 minutes. Once we reached Coosawhatchie, Princess was transferred to her new foster mom, Carolyn Davis. As you can see by the photos, Princess is a sweet, mature lady.

Below, is the track of the car ride.

Princess -- This happy girl is 13 years old, and came from Brevard, NC. She was kept in a pen outdoors all of those 13 years. She went to animal control when her owner became sick and could no longer "care" for her. Despite having had no HW preventative her whole life, and being two years behind on vaccinations, Princess is healthy and HW negative. Also, despite having been penned all her life, she's a very friendly, lively lady. When Bonnie Thorpe took her to the vet in Seneca SC, the vet techs were trying to guess how many baths she would need to get clean -- she was extrememly filthy and smelly! This sweet gal will be going to live with her foster mom, Carolyn Davis, one of our newest fosters in SC.

Hilton Head Island Airport Open House Event

Hound Dog One and her flight crew will be present at the Hilton Head Island Airport Open House from Noon to 4pm this Saturday, May 8th. This is a great opportunity for the public to come on out and see how vital the airport is to our community. Various static displays of aircraft will be on hand to view as well as free BBQ sandwiches! CBHR will have a tent set up next to the plane as well.

Hope to see you there!

Mission 18

Mission 18 took place on April 9, 2010 as Hound Dog One returned to the skies to transport another CBHR hound. At the controls was pilot Ted Holstein and Hound Handler for this mission was Jamie Pasteris.

Hound Dog One took off from the Hilton Head Island Airport around 12:30pm for the long flight to Greenville, SC. Flight took approximately 20 minutes longer than normal due to strong head winds.

Upon landing at the Greenville Downtown Airport, we were met by temporary foster mom, Krisi Keenan, and Bennett. After some fuel and a few photos, we loaded up for Charleston, SC.

Flight time to Charleston was a short hour and 15 minutes due to the winds which were now blowing at our tail. Bennett slept most of the way back and woke up when we started the descent.

Upon arrival, we were met by new foster mom, Liz Elder.

Charleston Air Expo - CANCELLED

The Charleston Air Expo scheduled on April 17, 2010 in Charleston, SC was officially cancelled today by the air base. Hound Dog One and her crew were looking forward to this event as we were scheduled to be a static display and have a CBHR exhibit set up next to the aircraft. Our thanks to those of you that have stepped up and volunteered your time to help us at this event. We hope to be invited back in the future.

Hound Dog One Events Update

I'm excited to announce that I just submitted the application for Hound Dog One to be a static display (with a CBHR exhibit) in the Charleston Air Expo on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at Charleston International Airport in Charleston, SC. The main show is on Saturday, however, there will be a military family appreciation day show on Friday the 16th. We'll need some volunteers to assist Kim and I both days so if you are available to help, let us know.

In addition, HD1 and her crew are looking forward to the MCAS Cherry Point Air Show in May. We'll need volunteers to assist us at that show as well since that one is a three day event. What an opportunity for us to reach out to potential adopters at these two shows. Both shows average approximately 150,000 people each. Better yet, it does not cost CBHR a dime!
